Christmas Shopping!!!

Well, I thought I was completely finished with all of the Christmas shopping. I had all of the gifts bought! Richard never does any Christmas shopping, except for mine and he always waits until the 23rd or the 24th before he does that. So he got up at 8am this morning and told me to get ready we were going shopping....I told him that I already had it all done and there was nothing else to buy. He said "Well, I haven't done any shopping" I don't know what got in to him, but several hundred dollars later, we are back home! He bought extra for the kids and picked up a food saver for me. I had been wanting one for a while so he got that. I actually looked at an embordiery machine too, but all they had was the display and I didn't want it. I told him also that I wanted to do some research on them first before I bought one. So all I ended up with quilting wise was these two fabrics.

I only bought 1/2 yd of the blue, but I got 2 1/2 yds of the green. I will use it to border my green YBR top that I made a few weeks ago. I needed some other border fabrics but I really needed to match those up and I didn't have anything with me. Maybe next time. Mom said when she got in she wanted to go to Hobby Lobby, so maybe I can get some while I am down there.

I am soooooooo tired and my blood pressure is running high. It has been for several days now. I am on blood pressure medication but I just checked it and it is 140/106. So I think I will hit the couch for a while to see if it goes down any.

Sounds like you had a busy day! Paul and I went Christmas shopping today too. He got my gifts and we got his mothers. I'll have to post about getting it later. At least you got to look at machines which is always fun.

It sounds like you had a fun time shopping together. I went out for a little while with Jen but not really much Christmas shopping done just regular things that needed to be picked up. Rest easy so that BP comes down.

Your fabrics are yummy! So were the stores crazy with shoppers?

Take care of you, with that BP, and have a wonderful Christmas!

You have to be careful of your blood pressure and rest as much as you can.
